Re: My life is almost over.
I own a 240K house.
I have 500K in the bank.
I'm getting 28K from SS
but I'm 65. There is really nothing for me to live for.

I don't care about anything, I have no friends or family. Nobody ever calls me.

My house is falling apart because I'm too lazy to give a shit. My car is 15 years old and I'm too lazy to get a new one.

I don't want a pet. I watch TV and I exercise. I only drink on weekends at night. I quit getting high. I bought a guitar but I can't really play it.

I know some women, but frankly at this age...they are not fuckable.

I live in the dreary Midwest in a boring city.

Except for going to Walmart and Kroger after I work out, there just isn't much for me to do.

I haven't worked for five years so I haven't bought any new clothes for 5 years, except for some shoes, socks and underwear. I mostly sit around in sweatpants and lounge pants. I go a week sometimes without putting on jeans or pants.

Most people would look at me from afar and think I've got it made. But the futility of my life stares me in the face, and if I look at my past, it is nothing but mistakes and regrets.

Thanks for listening.

Re: My life is almost over.
I've scrolled through this entire thread and what I've read is pitiful.

Me me me, grown-ass men whining about their misery and woman being useless to them. It's no wonder a good woman didn't stick by your side.

Make yourself useful, contribute to the common good, and you may just gain a bit of wisdom.

Shallow men become so useless when they get old. It's very unappealing and speaks volumes about how little they learned in life

Convert to Islam - all of your previous sins/shameful acts will be forgiven by Allah effective immediately. You'll learn the true purpose of your existence and you will meet your Creator on good terms. Allah can show you what true blessings look like. You haven't seen anything yet.

Do it while there is time left. Life is short.

Re: My life is almost over.
OP: I am a 60 year old female. I crossed your bridge 30 years ago. Every sicko here on GLP knows women over 30 are not fuckable.

We are seen as old money grabbers with no souls and we are all stupid whores with no brains.

I did different. I got a small family so no support there. Over the years, I built my life slowly with zero taking advantage of any man.

I hardly had sex since I was 30. No, I wasn’t fat. No, I wasn’t a gold digger.

I have bought, for cash, my last several homes. I retired in 2018. After only 17 years as an IT pro.

You just need a friend to talk to. I am here to talk to you. Get a one month paid account and email me thru the GLP system.

Your life is not over. It is just time to evolve beyond your dick.

Edited: spelling
 Quoting: Maiya


I don't know if OP will respond, but you helped me. I'm 69 and in good shape, but am feeling much like OP said (only I do keep busy). I have faith, but somehow, the last while, I just feel so hopeless. Your post got me thinking. Thank you.
 Quoting: wkk


Good! I am a paid member on GLP so I can go there with the email system. I am glad I got you thinking.

Women, men… are so much more than their looks. We are people. First.

As I said, I crossed that bridge 30 years ago. Then I found myself.

so what do you want out of life? We have to start there.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82524912


I used to want this specific woman. But she was crazy and I couldn't marry her. I guess that always made me depressed after that somewhat. If you meet someone who you feel you can connect with but they are such a sociopath that they can't be honest or real or grow a thing together. it's always just about them.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 85377045


Meanwhile, OP's former girlfriend on another thread:

I used to want this specific Walmart shopping slob in the Midwest. But he was lazy and and selfish and I could never bring myself to want to marry him. I guess that always made me depressed but then I actually found someone with empathy and who gave a shit about life and it "fixed me" if you know what I mean.

If you meet someone who you feel you can connect with but they are such a sociopath that they can't be honest or real or grow with you or give a shit about anything but themselves and young tits, well - it's always just about them.

That’s heavenly life. You re so blessed.

I have Chinese friend who came over severl years ago, saw my life and attitude just like yours. He pulled me over and asked me to really quit feeling that way. Be grateful for all my experiences as Heaven’s gift of experiential existence, stop desiring for more and open myself to explore the spiritual and sublime planes of existence.
I took his advice and never looked back. I am now happy in my own skin, satisfied with my own company, and open to lots of alternative ways of seeing and appreciating life.

Re: My life is almost over.
OP, you are a magnificent incredibly strong silken thread, your colours so beautiful, so moving - they are all your thoughts, feelings, experiences.

As you experience you continually weave an incredible, never-ending tapestry of Life. Without your 'thread' glistening and contributing to this beautiful tapestry it would be incomplete. Just like a pulled thread from a sweater leaves it incomplete.

You, alone light up the world and, you are integral to this experience we are all sharing in. You are necessary here to continue to weave your beauty into the Tapestry.

While you may be in a rut, take a moment to see all your accomplishments; your home, savings, wow. Now start to move from the mind into the body. Get outside, challenge yourself with a class or two at the local college, online classes, what's your next challenge? Perhaps move a few miles away? A vacation that gets your out of your comfort zone?

Everyone always gives the wrong advice in these threads because people only see the things of the world. They tell you get hobbies, go date, do this, do that, travel the world. No. I'll tell you what you should do.

You are going to die. And when you die you will go to heaven or to hell. Your choices in this life determine where you go. Life after death is for eternity.

Wow? Do you feel better. I'll play.

I own a 240K house +30 acres, free and clear.

I have 20K in the bank, 15K of silver, 15K of gold, 25K of guns/ammo.

I'm getting 90K/year from working a job that I can't get enough of.

I'm 62. Every day excites me as I watch this collapse progress.

My house is not falling apart because I built it to not fall apart and need very little maintenance. My car is 22 years old and runs like a new one.

I don't want a pet either. I watch no TV. I don't exercise. I wish people would stop calling me. I drink when I want and I never got high. I don't do music.

I only know one woman, my wife, who's 2 years old than me and is very fuckable. But, she's only ever given it up to me.

I live it what looks like a state park. Hills and hollows with trails and woods.

The wife and I go shopping every Friday afternoon. We hit Walmart, Kroker, Save-A-Lot and the hardware store. I go mushroom hunting, shooting, hiking (all on my own place).

The last gap in employment was 28 years ago when I started working for the IT company which I can't get enough of.

Most people look at me like I have it made. I would agree with them.

I wish you were my neighbor. I'd ask you to mow my yard for me and help me cut firewood. I'd meet you for lunch and we'd talk politics and family. 2 weeks and I'd have you sprinting to a job somewhere, worshiping at my church and loving life.

Its all a choice. You could go buy a different car, run it for a while, then trade it in, buy another. Do all kinds of things. The world is wide open for you. You've got enough money to do things (10 times what I have) that some of us only dream of.

Just figure out that you want to do something and go do it.

...and who ever said beautiful female company has to include fucking? Some women just like having a man around and they only occasionally want to fuck. I love being around beautiful women but I don't really want to fuck them.

Honestly, it seems to me like if you pay a little YOUNG women will throw themselves at you. It might be a new hobby. Trying to avoid seducing young women while buying them dinner.

Jeez, dude. Get a clue. Life has many challenges for you. Socially, technically, financially. You have got it made. Get off your ass!
